Mairead Fitzpatrick joins Sprout as she nears completion of the 4-year degree program at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto. Mairead first joined Sprout while completing her externship, however her success and stellar attitude meant we couldn’t let her get away! Although Mairead has completed her formal schooling in order to achieve her Doctor of Naturopathy, she doesn’t write her licensing exams until February 2018. Mairead is available for bookings at a reduced Naturopathic rate under Dr. Chanel’s license, meaning that appointments with Mairead can still be put through your insurance. Feel free to call or email if you have any further questions.
After taking a maternity leave following the birth of her son, she is passionately focused on helping her patients achieve optimal health and well-being. As a Naturopathic intern, she enjoys making information clear and accessible to patients, so they can feel fully informed and comfortable in making the best possible decisions concerning their health. Knowing that each patient is an individual with unique personal goals, she sets out to customize and collaborate on her intentions and plans. Mairead is known for her enthusiastic spirit and her warm demeanor; something you’ll readily see when meeting her! She gets excited about educating her patients and views her role as being that of both a teacher and a facilitator. Her creativity shines through everything she does, ultimately benefiting patients who often feel stuck. Her special interests lie in pre- and post-natal, pregnancy, labour/delivery and pediatrics, as well as stress-management, immunity, digestion, and mental health.
Some of Mairead’s other credentials include: 4 year BA in English/Fine Arts from Wilfrid Laurier University, 4 year BA in Graphic Communications/Design from Ryerson University, soon to be a Board-Certified Naturopathic Doctor, Medical Brigade member for Naturopathic Doctors International, Labour Doula, 1st Degree Reiki Practitioner, and mom to her 10-month-old son.
